Quick and Easy Skillet Dinner Buns

Quick & Easy Skilet Dinner Buns

We cook just about everything in our cast iron skillets or pots, including bread. These quick skillet dinner buns are my go to for when we need bread in a hurry. Using a quick rise yeast makes it possible to have them in the oven in 45 minutes with only a single rise. The cast iron skillet gets slathered with butter which creates a beautiful crisp crust with a light fluffy interior.

We serve them with soup or chilli most often but they are great with butter and jam as well. You can also add some grated cheese and herbs to this recipe for a more savoury treat.

Useful Tip

After baking these buns, be sure to remove them from the cast iron pan to cool. Sometimes a “metallic” iron flavour can get absorbed into certain foods and breads are definitely one of them.

Ingredients

  • 2.5 - 3 Cups all purpose flour
  • 4 - 1/2 tsp Quick rise yeast
  • 3 Tbsp Sugar
  • 3/4 Tsp Salt
  • 1 Cup Very warm water
  • 4 Tbsp Butter (plus 2 Tbsp for greasing pan and brushing on buns)

Instructions

Combine 1 cup of flour, yeast, sugar and salt in a large bowl

Heat water and 4 Tbsp of butter until very warm and all butter is melted

Combine the water/butter mixture with your dry mixture and mix well. Let the mixture sit for two minutes

Add in 1/2 cup of flour and mix until combined. Keep gradually adding flour until you have a soft dough

Turn the dough out onto a counter and knead for 6-8 minutes until the dough is soft, elastic and no longer sticky. You might need to flour your counter and hands a few times while kneading.

Once the dough is soft an elastic, let it rest for ten minutes and then cut the dough into 12 pieces and shape into buns

Grease your 10" cast iron skillet with butter and place 9 buns around the outside and three in the centre of the pan

Cover gently with a cloth and let rise in a warm, draft free location for 45 minutes (or until doubled in size)

Preheat your oven to 375F. Melt butter and brush onto the buns

Bake for 18-20 minutes (until golden brown on top)

Remove from the cast iron skillet and brush the tops with remaining butter

Best when served warm!
